about

This popular French-Canadian song goes back to the fur trade, where voyageurs were known to sing in the canoe to keep their rhythm and spirits up as they paddled through the wilderness. The song describes plucking the feathers off a skylark (a small game bird) from head to toe.
Actions: As you sing along, point to the body parts being plucked, and just keep adding on each verse.

lyrics

Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

Je te plumerai la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
Et la tête, et la tête
Alouette, Alouette
O-o-o-o-oh
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

Je te plumerai les yeux
Je te plumerai les yeux
Et les yeux, et les yeux
Et la tête, et la tête
Alouette, Alouette
O-o-o-o-oh
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

Je te plumerai le bec
Je te plumerai le bec
Et le bec, et le bec
Et les yeux, et les yeux
Et la tête, et la tête
Alouette, Alouette
O-o-o-o-oh
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

Je te plumerai la barbe
Je te plumerai la barbe
Et la barbe, et la barbe
Et le bec, et le bec
Et les yeux, et les yeux
Et la tête, et la tête
Alouette, Alouette
